Open Thread and Ichthyomancy: Astros at Marlins (7/13)

The Marlins entertain the Astros tonight.

The starting pitcher for the Marlins is Dontrelle Willis.  The Astros will send Roy Oswalt to the hill.

Game time is 7:05 p.m.

This a rematch of the opening day starters.  Both of the pitchers are among the elite of the National League.

Willis is looking for his third win in as many starts.

Oswalt is hoping he gets some run support in order to break his losing streak in his last two starts.

The Astros fired their hitting coach yesterday due to the team's very poor performance at the plate.  The other move they made was to acquire Aubrey Huff from the Devil Rays in hopes of jump starting their anemic offense.  Except for Berkman, no one on the Astros is doing much to write home about in the way of hitting.

It should be a good pitchers duel.

Ichthyomancy is up and running.  Be sure to get your picks in on time.
